These students were nominated and voted on by the entire Forks Middle School staff to find the students who have consistently shown the highest integrity, commitment, and respect. They are our role models for the Middle School, as they help build a culture of kindness and high expectations. Only 10% of the student body wins this award all year. As a result of winning, they receive a gift card and a certificate from the Soroptimists (and the certificate looks great in their portfolio when applying for scholarships in the future!)
